12 Jun Jenna: Finished in Hamlin, Texas
Hamlin, Texas – First stop down! We finished cutting here in Hamlin last night around midnight. It was a pretty late night, but it looked like rain and we were so close to being done that Mom and Dad decided to finish it. When you can cut that late, you better just do it.
Today was spent cleaning trucks and equipment, and settling up with farmers. We treated ourselves to steak for supper tonight. What did this Nebraska girl think of Texas beef? I guess it wasn’t too bad.
Tomorrow, Dad and I will make the first of two trips to our next stop near Hooker, Okla. For us, each move takes two trips because we don’t have the number of drivers or capability to get it all done in one.
